Qt-API for Speech recognition



  • Hello,

    Is there a convenient Qt-API for controlling apps via speech?
    If not, I am considering to evaluate one as OS-Project, Is anyone interested to join?
    It could be a wrapper around available APIs (e.g Nuance).

    Regards,

    Valentin Heinitz

  • There is Simon Listens, which is open source recognizition based off KDE, maybe you can use it for your purposes.

    This is offtopic, but you might want to fix ”API” in opening post to be ”API:s”, as it reads...



  • Hi Smar, didn't really get what you meant, could you update as follows:

    existing text: xxxxx

    new text: yyyyy



  • existing: API

    new text: API:s

    The thing is, that the system converts :foo in the end of shorts to label... so maybe APIs, or some bug fixing or some way to work around it or...



  • Hello Smar,

    Thank you very much, I was not aware of this project. However, my first impression from docu was - it is not very mature.
    What I am thinking about is not an application or a particular speech recognition engine, but a Qt-Wrapper for existing SR frameworks.

    The purpose is to help developers making their decision for using Qt in SR-Projects. My first step would be to make a Qt-wrapper for Nuance.

    Best regards,

    Valentin Heinitz



  • @smar, yes I saw, even the text was underlined with the same suggestion and now its corrected. thanks

    I just thought that if Simon would have something like API... Like KDE projects often have. Maybe that's not case this time.



  • I recently started project QtSpeech available on gitorius, to provide common API to tts engines available on Mac,Windows and maybe to festival on Linux, now it contains only draft files, but I will commit soon working implementation for Mac. Later I can also consider including connection to speech recognition API for Mac and windows.



  • It might be worth keeping an eye on this:

  • has anyone got success in QtSpeech??? or in any api for speech recorgnision

    Hope the TTS and speech recognition APIs will coming soon in Qt. Android has it, so i hope Qt also can have this feature in both Symbian and MeeGo/Maemo.



  • waiting for QT to have TTS and speech recognition APIs

    For QT as in QuickTime related suggestions please refer to their support forums.

    Let's not be too mean. I'm sure that though he misspelled Qt by typing QT, he sure meant Qt. For which other reasons he would be posting to this forum in the first place ;)

    That's cool!
    I've tested it on Windows 7, Qt 4.8.4 right now and it works fine!
    Very easy to build and to integrate.

    hello vheinitz,

    Can we do both things:

    1)TTS (Text to Speech)
    2)Speech to Text

    I don't think the speech recognition is implemented in this project. I haven't tested it. Only TTS.



  • Thank you vheinitz,,
    Is there any way to achieve it -speech recognition in Qt.

    Because your thread title's answer is not there.

    It works pretty good, but it's python.
    I think it can't be so hard to program this in c...
